Frame is painted and plumbed. Pete & Jake's front and rear-end installed.
Body is ready to set onto chassis.
Engine installed, fuel lines ran...we're ready for the body.
Here's a 3/4 view of the engine sitting on the body. The blue engine and transmission are a great contrast.
With the body on and the recessed firewall, this lets the motor set back so there will be plenty of clearance for the fan.
This is a closer view of the engine up against the firewall.
I always like to install the speakers in the corners at ear level. One of the reasons I do this is when the speakers are in the door panels only, these old ears can't hear em.
ididit steering column and steering column drop installed.
Bill and I talked about keeping the trunk smooth so we opted for the power trunk lift that we sell. This allows him to not have a trunk handle.
There's not a lot of room in a Model A and not much hanging under the dash, so we decided to use a center console where we installed vintage air controls, the air vent and headlight switch.
Installing the tunes.
Next we fit the hood and hood hinge kit.
Larry really gets "into his work" when wiring the car.
You'll notice in this picture that this car has hidden door hinges and the doors are flush mounted. Model A doors overlap, so this took a bit of work to accomplish. Power windows are now in and the speakers. (That I can't hear with my big ol ears).
Gas tank installed.
Wiring continues along with installation of Vintage Air's Mini Space-Saver.
Assembly is nearly finished with the installation of the hood sides.
That's a wrap!
